Project description-Car Park System

Parramatta is an important suburb from the west of Sydney that has variety business. Therefore, Australian government decides to deploy seven car park systems that supply the high demand of this place. These car parks should conduct and manage under a new car park system that follows the requirements of the City Council. Firstly, this car park system can supply many functions for a daily operation for each car park encompassing printing tickets, operating payment activities and solving barriers. Secondly, it can operate to manage all of these car parks including recording problems, printing season tickets and monitoring service level agreements with security services supplier that ensures the car parks to be safety.

Project’s scope boundaries and assumptions-Car Park System

There are scope boundaries and also essential assumptions that the project could be identified at beginning step of the project.

Scope boundaries

Firstly, the project will implement new system around Parramatta City where the seven car parks have already built. Furthermore, City of Parramatta Council has approved the project and this project should be conducted now to reduce a high demand for car parking. Secondly, The system has been concentrated on two main functions including the daily operations and the management. Thirdly, the project can use one or more external security and sanitation services for seven car parks. Finally, it will focus on the requirements from government to ensure the project that conducted, legally. According to City of Parramatta Council (2017), a new system for these car parks must be followed the compulsory guidelines from government. Car park must have security and fire alarm system. Further more, the price for parking is fixed to the rate that Parramatta CBD Council has issued.

Car Park System Project


For project management, it can be assumed that the project has limit budget around $ AUD 2 million for seven car parks to build a new system. Next, the project is considered easy maintaining and repairing to make sure a system run smoothly without delay in long time. Therefore, devices such as pay stations, sensors and control pillars will buy from local market or international market that has repairing and maintaining services in Sydney. Another focal issue that is the deadline of this project for around three months needs to archive successfully.
